Torrent files disallowed

Torrent files have their advantages, but a major disadvantage is that they are blocked in a great many enterprises. Do you offer any alternate means to download files which you prefer to distribute in torrent format? (Vista i86 boot disk .iso file?)
Hi captainfepa, welcome to NST.

I'm afraid we no longer distribute large files except via bittorrent. We had originally made HTTP and FTP mirrors available for the x86 ISO images, but the extremely high ratio of hot-linking to actual visits ended up costing a literal fortune (2TB+ of data transferred in less than a month) so we had to disband those mirrors and put up bittorrent seeds instead.
